Ireland’s 2018 Feeder Team Announced

The National Coarse Fishing Federation of Ireland are pleased to announce the team to attend the FIPS-ed Feeder World Championships to be held in Italy this July. The 2018 team sees the addition of two new anglers to the squad joining Michael, Cathal, Johnny & Rimantas. Both well-known on the angling scene; Sensas angler Julian Kendrick from Edenderry in Co. Offaly is an active angler on the Leinster canals and Ireland’s angling festivals probably most known for his FEEDERFEST win at Inniscarra last October; James O’Doherty is an up and coming all-rounder, a member of the Youth U20 squad and a keen feeder angler. The team will represent Ireland on the Ollanato in Italy this year and it is proposed to take forward the same squad to the Bloemhof Dam when several championship disciplines come together at the World Games in South Africa in February 2019.
